    Default running lights

    These Yankee running lights came with my '46 Chief, and I understand there's a variety of aftermarket lights like these out there, e.g. Guide. Don't know much about Yankee, but I did somewhere see that Yankee made lights earlier than 1946, so I guess they'd be considered period accessories!

    Nifty, Harry!

    Are they the same size as other 'boat lights'?

    I just gave away a DoRay headlamp (or whatever: Chicago Toronto?) to a buddy at Dport, Folks!

    Like a bad penny, it will probably still come back.

    Harry; I think that I have some later Yankee lights. I'll have to check. But I've never seen the one's that you have. Only Guide and early unmarked lights.

    They are fence post caps, Craig!

    The rest is mostly stainless, plus halogen bulbs.

    The two spare stanchions are for mounting vertically, by moving the clear plug.

    The glass lenses are 'real'.

    PPPS: Doh! The 6" Do-Ray came back.
    And for reference, this nifty bayonet-plug-in Guide marker that's not quite John Deere Green.

    Harry; Here are some pics of the later model Yankee Lights that I have. WAY DIFFERENT from the early lamps that you have. As you said, yours are probably early aftermarket.CIMG1443.JPGCIMG1440.JPGCIMG1441.JPGCIMG1442.JPG
